The Salt Lick’n Hicks are Clara Durbidge and Chris Hutton. Their music is a meld of roots, blues and folk music.
Clara is a fourth generation Stradbroke Islander and has lived on the island all her life. Growing up on an island, her life is influenced and revolves around weather patterns, tides, swell size and most importantly community. All this comes through in her music. Chris plays a number acoustic instruments including guitar, fiddle, lap-slide and mandolin adding to rich flavour of Salt Lick’n Hick’s melodies. The Salt Lick’n Hicks have recently performed at Island Vibe Festival on Stradbroke Island, the Cygnet Folk Festival in Tasmania and the Bleach Festival on the Gold Coast.
